Yesterday, I wrote about how there was a change in the terms and conditions of the UOB PRVI Miles card to exclude the awarding of UNI$ for UOB PRVI Payment facility transactions.
On 23 October 2018, UOB reached out to clarify that you will still continue to earn 1 mile per dollar requested from the UOB PRVI Pay facility and there will be no change in how the facility will work.
Here’s the reply from UOB:
This was in contrast to what they told me on 22 October 2018 when they mentioned that the awarding of miles through the PRVI Miles payment facility will stop from 1 November 2018.
Here’s what I was told on 22 October 2018:
PRVI Pay facility continues to earn 1 mpd, buy miles at 2 cents each
In their statement, UOB clarifies that the new clause inserted in the PRVI Miles terms and conditions which is to take effect from 1 November 2018 was to state that the use of the PRVI Miles Payment facility will not earn you the usual 1.4mpd per dollar when you use your PRVI Miles card.
So it looks like you will still have the option of purchasing miles at 2 cents a piece when you utilize the PRVI Miles Payment facility.
Chalk this up as a false alarm then, and just as well. Being able to have the avenue to purchase unlimited miles with little hassle and at as low as 2 cents a mile is one of the key uses of the PRVI Miles card, and had that been removed there’d be less of a compelling case to hold it.
